September 25th 2014 from 13.30 - 15.15: Aqua for All & partners at the Delta's in time of climate change conference
The Stichting Waterbuffer together with the 3R partnership organizes an inspiring and interactive experience on small scale and subsurface waterbuffers as smart fresh water solutions.
Fresh water buffers can provide a suitable solution for water shortages in coastal areas worldwide. Several barriers have to be overcome to widely apply these technologies. Presentations from inspiring case studies from Spain, The Netherlands and Bangladesh will form the kick-off for interactive discussions on necessary next steps for upscaling.
Moderator: Paul van Koppen (Kopconsult)
Speakers: Frank van Steenbergen (MetaMeta), Arjen de Vries (Acacia Water), Pere Camprovin (CETaqua Water Technology Center Spain), Kazi Matin Ahmed (Dhaka university Bangladesh).
